CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE July, 2007 , July 13, 2007 By Joe Bosso STORMY RELATIONSHIP 'Cocaine-fuelled bitch-slaps' a-go-go as Lindsey's bird spills the beans. One day, in early 1977, a young woman named Carol Ann Harris drove down Hollywood Boulevard as Fleetwood Mac's "Go Your Own Way" blared from the radio. Having worked as a studio manager where the album Rumours was mixed, Harris had heard the song many times before. But this time it sounded different, Harris thought. It sounded like a smash. She couldn't wait to tell her new boyfriend, Lindsey Buckingham. Harris's hunch couldn't have been more on the money. Rumours quickly became a worldwide smash, a phenomenon that would ultimately go on to sell over 30 million copies. In "Storms" Harris recounts, in often astonishing detail (she kept exhaustive notes and taped diaries), her tumultuous, passionate and sometimes violent eight-year relationship with Mac's tortured guitarist, to whom she served as muse, nurse (early in their courtship, Buckingham was diagnosed with epilepsy), drug buddy and constant companion. As an autobiographical account of a show business love affair spiralling out of control, "Storms" has the de rigeur script elements in place: the red carpets, limos, Lear jets, endless bottles of champagne, as well as break-ups, make-ups, and cocaine-fuelled bitch-slaps and chokeholds. But "Storms" really gets going when Harris casts a gimlet eye on the secret society that was the Mac, a collection of characters caught up in the mindless consumption (narcotic and otherwise) their long-overdue success afforded them. Band jealousies and resentments run rampant, but Harris doesn't take sides. In fact, she paints herself as an outsider longing to be accepted as a member of the group's inner circle. Even in the end, her dismissal of the abusive Buckingham is anything but loveless. As everyone surely knows, you can never break the chain. Joe Bosso for Classic Rock Magazine, Book Review
